Stata complains that my “license is not applicable to this version”. What does that mean?

Title   Windows installation
Author Alan Riley, StataCorp
Date January 1999; updated March 2006

You have installed the SE version of Stata, but your license is only valid for Intercooled or Small Stata. Or, you have installed the MP version, but your license is only valid for Stata/SE, Intercooled Stata, or Small Stata.

Check your license and confirm which version of Stata you are authorized to use. Then redo the installation.
